yeah they get you on the ease of use features like modular cables. If you are going for a clean look on some cases a modular PSU is required though.

the modular ones are always more expensive, because of how they are setup, its more than just a cluster of wires coming out of the unit, you have all the extra cables & connectors as well

modular is generally worth it though if you have the $$, i wish i had modular because the TX750 has a ton of wires i dont need
